Father of Three Kings.
Charles Bonaparte, father of the
great Kmperor Napoleon, was a hum
ble lawyer, with no very extensive
practice, In the sleepy little town of
Ajacclo, In the isle of Corsica, lie
seems to have been a most affect Ion
ate and exemplary parent, and as the
father of three sons who became kings
(Joseph, king of Naples and Spain;.
Louis, King of Holland, and Jerome,
king of Westphnlla), and a fourth who
became the greatest military com
mander, monarch and king-maker of
modern times, he holds an unique
place In history.
There were thirteen children In the
family. Napoleon being the second.
Charles Honuparte. although hurdly
well-to-do, strove to give his sons the
best possible education, and had he
not decided to send Napoleon (then
aged ten) to the military school at

Word "Lot" of Puritan" Origin.
The use of the word "lot" to des
ignate a held or plot of land, Is uni
versal In the United .States. It had
its origin among the Puritans, and
was the product of their strict adher
ence to Biblical customs.
( Among the curly settlers of New
England the extensive Halt-mnrslies
from which the suit-hay was cut, were
owned In common, every man helping
himself to us much tiny as lie wished.
As the population Increased this con
dition could not prevail with general
harmony, and it was agreed to divide
the marshes equally among all tho
families. This was done by the Bib
lical fashion of lot and the portion
which fell to each iniin was known as
"his lot." In a short time the word
came to apply to any piece of land,
and finally reached the meaning of
any great quantity.
Survival of Old Roman Custom.
The custom of appointing promi
nent citizens to act as ii guard of
honor ut a greut man's funeral is the
survival of an ancient Roman custom.
The name "pallbearers" also descends
from the old du.vs i;.- the "City of
the Seven Hills."
"Pall" conies from the Latin word
'palla," the long sweeping robes worn
only by priests and men and women
of the highest standing. When a great
personage died his "palla" was thrown
over his collln and a number of his
distinguished friends were permitted
to "bear the palla" to the grave and
to act as guard of honor to the dead.
